We talk about shaving crotches a lot. We talk about shaving butts a little. What is rarely discussed is the delicate, perhaps artistic skill set required to shave the anus itself. We never judge anyone for getting this done by a professional usually in the form of waxing , but we also acknowledge that a lot of you go getters like to do things for yourselves. Save yourself some pain and learn how to shave your anus hair the right way.

The hair on your butt does serve a purpose; it helps minimize friction and chafing while also keeping the area ventilated and dry. Some people ask, why would someone want to do this? There are a number of horror stories about pubic shaving, but for men who can master the art, it is well worth the reward. Removing body hair can make you look and feel clean, plus it can also be sexually arousing and stimulating not only to you, but to your partner that is of course if your partner prefers a smooth bum—some don't. You want to make sure you don't introduce any new bacteria to your skin while you are shaving, so thoroughly clean your body and then completely dry off. A hot shower or bath is recommended—this will help soften the hair and prepare your skin.
